Jennifer had this to say about Rancho Sahuarita, “I love having the pool and park and open grassy areas all within walking distance. Even the big park and field where the kids play team sports is just a mile or so away. When the weather is nice, we walk to the games. We also have all our shopping needs close by. The frys out here has EVERYTHING down to sheets for beds and a huge toy department. Overall, I think this is a great place for families."
